. elsewhere it will be warm across southern california, cool across the northeast. let's talk about the potential impact for this incoming nor'easter.the timing of which will be more so tomorrow than today. heavy rain, coastal flooding, beach erosion and wet snow for the interior. maybe even the coastline. here's a storm going across florida today. get out early, especially across the central and southern part of the state. tomorrow, the low rides up the coastline. it won't be anywhere near like sandy but it will have close enough to have impacts. there are areas that will be evacuating, flood watches in effect. and also some white on the map here. just a combination of really horrifying elements considering the fact that we have tens of thousands of people that are homeless with this storm coming in. zoraida, we'll keep you posted as this forecast changes. >> insult to injury. thank you so much, rob. an evidence hearing is under way at a military base in washington state. it will determine whether robert bales should be tried for murder in the shooting deaths of 16 afghan civilians
in our state delegations and across the country. i'm very proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators, senator feinstein and senator boxer so women are empowered in california. i'm also want to acknowledge that although our numbers are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate, senator-elect tammy baldwin and we're very proud of that. [ applause ] senator-elect macy hirano, only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that's pretty exciting and unfortunately we won't have kathy hochul and betty sutton in this next congress, but the future is soon and coming upon us and we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are in the past week since the election, we're still finishing up some of our campaigns, we're very proud of the success as i said yesterday and as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? of the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams o
getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at large majorities of african-americans. latino and asian americans voting democratic, the question may be
that this be similar to gay marriage proposition in california, people told pollsters one thing, but in privacy of voting booth diddin something different, you have a lot of people that voted for barack obama first time who will not admit, that they are not voting for him again, they say yes, but when they get in polling place, they will say country before party, he had us for 4 years, he is gone. lou: idea that, president obama has reestablished momentum following, hurricane sandy, and all of the damage it has done, in this part of the country, how much weight to you give to governor christie embracing the president over it, and thanking him, thanking them for a job that is right now as president likes to use expression, incomplete. >> income plight, you know, i don't give it any credit, there is a -- part of the equation that is missing, people think that tea party have disappeared, nobody talks about how tea party kay out in force, we have not had a reason to get back out and march in streets. the tea party is till have. they are coming out in force, and i am telling you now this will be a d
but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher

, california to boost sales by staying open late. support local retailers november 24th for the third annual small business saturday. watch "your business" this sunday morning at 7:30 on msnbc. sfx- "sounds of african drum and flute" look who's back. again? it's embarrassing it's embarrassing! we can see you carl. we can totally see you. come on you're better than this...all that prowling around. yeah, you're the king of the jungle. have you thought about going vegan carl? hahaha!! you know folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than antelope with night-vision goggles. nice! get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pai
in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in the coming months. chief among them, reaching a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, a series of tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect next year. >> the decisions confronting congress over the next four months are bigger than i think most of us have seen in our lifetime. at least on the fiscal matters. >> reporter: it's not just the fiscal cliff. >> most people think we need some fundamental tax reform, some cuts in spending and entitlement reform.
they will continue to have seen a power. darrell issa the congressman from california in my view will exercise that to a greater degree. you will see a lot of intense followup on stories solyndra-like crony capitalism. it will make it hard for him to do anything. >> i think it's likely. if you were making predictions today you would say it is likely republicans will maintain control of the house. given that the president will be in a second term that we are going to face an immense fiscal challenge going forward in terms of the deficit. i think one more legacy point i would raise is the president has spoken about doing something about the pressures on the middle class. the growing gap between high-end earners and people getting left behind and that's why he talked about the investments he wants to make in education. one of my great hopes would be that he would be more open to taking risks, getting some flack from the teachers unions and do something about the quality of american schools. that's something that would move my heart. megyn: do you think he's likely to be more bipartisan or will he
it goes without saying. the president will carry new york and california. mitt romney will carry texas. those states are not in play right now so it's in terms of an immediate impact but the battleground states, widely admired. people that don't like necessarily democrats or republicans, they look to see who's the best candidate and i think michael bloomberg has sway potentially. if it's a close race in ohio, virginia or nevada, maybe anything could have an impact on swaying final undecided voters and bloomberg could have an impact, not a huge impact. i think you're right on that matter but anything could have an impact. >> we thank you. see you at the top of the hour for "the situation room." i want to get back to the aftermath of sandy. we have seen, you have seen the absolute destruction over a couple of days that nothing more shocking than the pictures from breezy point, new york. look at this. where not just the floodwaters but fire has consumed home after home after home. more than 100 before the fire stopped and when you look at the images, can you imagine staying in your home a
, real quick, i'm going to share my favorite ratherism. this was when i was in california watching on the trinatron, dan rather said that the race that night, he said this is like a too long car ride home from the beach in a too tight bathing suit. >> i remember. >> i love it. >> that would be a long car ride. that's pretty good. >> mike, what are you looking at today? >> a little sandy. we're going to have a big indication early with that 7:00 poll close in virginia. romney's tried to be so dependent on battleground virginia. we're going to know pretty soon what kind of a night, how long a night it's going to be for mitt romney just as we're watching hamilton county in ohio, two counties, those virginia -- in virginia, tell me who wins loudon county, virginia, it was obama in '08, tell me who won those counties, i'll tell you who almost certainly is president. we also know very early from the demographic in your exit polls, that if young people turn out, and since it's not a specific state, that's going to be a huge indicator if i want any one demographic piece from tonight it's t
hispanic vote, about 11% this time out and you see an influx of younger people and people from california who have come here and they have changed the complexion of this state. it's now a very purple state. a third democratic, a third republican and this county where i am a third independent. we're here in arapaho which is south of denver, one of the swingiest of the swing counties. you can see behind me they're counting ballots. they're counting ballots that have already been mailed in. that's the numbers we're working on now. this is a big mail in early vote, early state here in arapaho, county. about 68% people mailed in before voting started today. now this is a state that was concerned about voting problems but it didn't turn out that way. because so many people voted early, the polling places were able to handle people who showed up. one area where they had a 90 minute, two hour wait and they said to people look if you change precincts you can go next door and you can vote in five minutes. that said, now this state is really beginning to count the votes that were cast today. about a
